If someone gave you a billion dollars, would you say "No thank you, I'd rather just have a normal life?"

Some of these powers are every bit as empowering as a billion dollars would be (in fact, some of them could almost certainly earn you a billion dollars if you played things right).

I could certainly understand some caution on the part of the major characters, but why not put on a magic show, for example? Molecule Girl, Captain Planet Girl, and Time-Stop Girl could do that very easily, and have people in complete awe of them.

To be fair, maybe they will do something like this later on.
